The Bozo criminals for today are from the cyberspace file. Five teenagers from Bloomington, Minnesota, were smart enough to break into a computer network but dumb enough to lead the cops directly to their door. The bozos hacked into an internet shopping site and stole about 25 credit card numbers, using them to buy thousands of dollars in merchandise online. Their mistake was in giving their own addresses– they had the stuff shipped right to their doorsteps. They were caught after the card owners saw the purchases on their bills and called the credit card companies. Armed with the bozo’s home addresses, the police had no trouble tracking our thieves down.
